Search results when using anchor links

On one of my pages I'm using anchor links so that the headings on my page will jump the user back up to the table of contents when they click on the heading.

I noticed that when I do a search for the headings on this page using the exact phrase, my page does not come up as a search result at all. I know of workarounds, but this seems like a potential bug to me.

Any knowledge on this?

Thanks Guilherme. We just upgraded to Confluence 5.5.3 and this problem is now solved. Thanks!

Hello Alice, this used to be a live bug in Confluence versions prior to 5.5.2 a fix has been delivered in that iteration of the application. Please consider taking the application to any version after that step to fix that, in case you are already in a post 5.5.2 please post to this thread.

Hope it helps.
